Revolutionising CPD Accreditation: A Path to Recognition and Growth

In the vibrant and ever-evolving landscape of professional development, a UK-based platform is pioneering a transformation in how training providers achieve accreditation. This innovative approach not only simplifies the journey towards earning CPD  Accreditation and Digital badges but also democratises the process, particularly benefiting underserved providers.

The Challenge of Lifelong Learning

Lifelong learning has become a cornerstone of personal and professional growth. With a plethora of training options available, the industry is booming, signifying a much-needed diversification in learning and development. However, this growth uncovers a significant challenge: the vast majority of training remains unrecognised, leaving thousands of providers and their valuable offerings in the shadows.

This issue is further underscored by the UK government’s ambitious Skills for Life programme, targeting a 60% skills enhancement goal. The initiative highlights a global recognition of the importance of continuous learning for economic growth and competitiveness. Yet, the path to formal recognition and the benefits it brings to the job market remain unclear for many. Currently 71% of lifelong learning remains unrecognised.

Introducing Self-Accreditation

Addressing this challenge head-on, our platform introduces a groundbreaking solution: self-accreditation. This approach cuts out the middleman, granting training providers worldwide the autonomy to accredit their courses. It’s a leap towards inclusivity and accessibility, especially in regions where obtaining accreditation is fraught with obstacles.

Our self-service platform empowers providers, giving them control over their accreditation process. With minimal costs and an easy start-up process, we’re breaking down the barriers that have traditionally favoured larger, more established institutions.

The Power of Digital Badges and Web3 #CPD Accreditation

In the era of digital credentials, our platform embraces the emergence of digital badges, a form of recognition that’s gaining popularity across various sectors, including the UK’s National Health Service. The integration of Web3 technology ensures that these certificates are not only verifiable but also tamper-proof.

We understand the initial challenges training providers face in structuring their courses. Our platform, therefore, offers support in defining three key parameters: Aims, Skills, and Outcomes. This simplification facilitates the publishing process, allowing the value of training to be recognised by a wider audience without the need for evaluation.


Our ethos, “LEARN IT, EARN IT, SHARE IT,” encapsulates the essence of our approach. We aim to make learning outcomes credible and shareable, aligning with the Open Badge principles of transparency, portability, and skill verification. These badges can be easily shared on social media and added to CVs, offering a branding opportunity for training providers and showcasing the value of their training.

Embracing Blockchain Without the Complexity

Our journey revealed a crucial insight: small and medium-sized training providers are less concerned with the technology behind accreditation, as long as it delivers results. Our focus, therefore, is on structuring and platform integration, utilising blockchain technology to ensure authenticity and security without overwhelming our users.

While we explore more sophisticated tools, including NFT documents for verification, our priority remains to offer a solution that is accessible, scalable, and responsive to emerging commercial demands. This balanced approach allows us to support the evolving needs of training providers and learners alike, ensuring our platform remains at the forefront of accreditation innovation.

Looking Ahead

As we continue to refine our platform and expand our support, our goal is clear: to make accreditation accessible to all, fostering a culture of lifelong learning that recognises and values the diversity of training available. Through self-accreditation, digital badges, and the strategic use of blockchain technology, we’re not just addressing the needs of today but paving the way for a more inclusive, verified, and valued future in professional development.

    Looking forward to this session. As someone who accredits a number of courses I’m very interested in this.
